One side of all highways at Delhi borders open for emergency services: Farmers

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Saturday said one side of all highways at Delhi borders, where farmers have been camping for months to protest the new farm laws, have been opened to ensure free passage for oxygen tankers and ambulances amid the Covid-19 crisis.

However, the SKM alleged, the Delhi Police has not removed the barricades.

This comes days after the SKM, an umbrella body of farm unions spearheading the agitation against the Centre's three agricultural laws, announced that one side of the highway at the Singhu border will be cleared for giving passage to vehicles carrying oxygen supplies.
